2014 Thank-Yous

The annual list of those deserving special recognition for contributions to Rocks & Minerals has grown steadily through the years, as has our appreciation. Just as important as our faithful readership and advertisers is this loyal network composed of those who provide financial support and volunteer their time and services.

In 2014, donors to the Color Fund contributed toward an expanded January/February issue and color in all six issues of the magazine; organizations provided subscription table space at symposia and gem and mineral shows; volunteers worked shifts and helped with the tremendous workload of putting on a silent auction; transporters delivered boxes of magazines to workers at shows; others provided space to store back issues and supplies in Arizona, Colorado, and even Germany until the next year's events; the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society sponsored a benefit auction for the magazine at its February show; and volunteer John Veevaert conducted an online auction to benefit the Color Fund. Our thanks are extended to one and all.
